The Grain Marketing Board (GMB), has reportedly fired four executives over allegations contained in an audit report which has not yet been made public.
The four executives are the GMB operations director, Lawrence Jasi, company secretary Rodney Mzyece and two other unnamed officials. Jasi has confirmed receiving the dismissal letter but did not share further details. He said:
I received a dismissal letter on Friday but I can not share the contents so its no comment for now.
ZBC News reports that its sources within the Ministry of Lands, Agriculture, Water and Rural Resettlement have confirmed the development but could neither name the audit firm involved nor the actual allegations levelled against the four executives.
Meanwhile, GMB General Manager, Rockie Mutenha, professed ignorance over the whole issue.
